secretary of state. republican senators john mccain and lindsey graham have called rice unthus worthy and unqualified for a promotion for her comments that an anti-muslim video triggered the benghazi attack that skilled four americans. president obama insisted the ambassador was simply making a presentation based on the available intelligence and had tough words for the senators. when they go after the u.n. ambassador apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. and should i choose, if i think that she would be the best person to serve america in the capacity at the state department department, then i will nominate here. >> eliot: much more on that a little later in the program. the president also reached out to the g.o.p. on immigration reform and offered an idea that he would like to see from congress. >> obama: whatever process we have needs to make sure that border security's strong, needs to deal with employers effectively, needs to provide a pathway for the undocumented here needs to deal with the dream act kids and i think that's some

john mccain the moderate because they think he's a crazy liberal. lindsey graham is closely allied with john mccain and so a lot of the right wing sees them as birds of the same feather. they call them republican in name only,rinos. the pressure is pretty strong. against it. >> jennifer: are there others that you're aware of, maybe that sahil wasn't thinking about. >> lamar alexander, senator from tennessee left the republican leadership a year, year and a half ago because he said he wanted more freedom to do what is right. you've got another senator from tennessee, bob corker who is often talked about on issues of cli carbohydrate change. -- of climate change. >> jennifer: he's good on electric vehicles. he was instrumental of getting it to come to tennessee. the day after the election, majority leader harry reid said he was going to seek filibuster reform. let's take a listen. >> i think that the rules have been abused and that we're going to work to change -- do away with the filibuster, but we're going to

of the principles that john mccain espoused, and even president bush. do you think that's the first place they'll go to build consensus with the president. >> that's a natural place to go because it's in their self interest to not lose roughly 12%, 15% of the electorate as they move forward. they'll lose texas. they'll lose virginia and north north carolina. florida. that's a formula politics, as you know, you want to grow. you don't want to do things that shrink. that's an area that is incumbent on the president to give a framework. i say this as a democrat. democrats shouldn't just talk about this issue as we're better than republicans. i mean, democrats need to be very affirmative about how important the latino population is to our country. they did great things day in an day out. they're a great part of our future, and it has to be more than hey we're better than the republicans. this is a very important constituency and we need to do right by them. >> gavin: what about gay marriage. there are some final counts in washington state but the three states--two states affirmative and the one that pul
it that in a second. do you expect the party to rally around some of the principles that john mccain or former president bush was willing to go in terms of comprehensive reform, do you think they'll go there with the president? >> it's natural place to look at because it's in their political self interest to not lose roughly 70% of the 10% of the electorate. if they continue than path they'll lose texas, north carolina florida. that's a formula in politics, you want to grow. you don't want to shrink. that is incumbent on the president to provide a framework. democrats should not think about this issue as we're better than republicans. democrats need to look at how important the latino population is to our country day in and day out, they are a part of our future. it needs to be more than we're better than the republicans, and this is a big ton consistent constituency and we need to support them. >> gavin: the gay marriage, two states affirmative and then they pull back in minnesota because of draconian legislation. you were in the thick of it. this is toxic even in our own party. >> look, you
conservatives. eventually, truth will out. in 2008, you could have run carrot top in a thong against john mccain and he probably would have won. the fact that barack obama won after all the misinformation and lying, makes me proud that the americans saw through the lies. people stood in line for hours. >> the jeep ads backfired. >> stephanie: this is going to be the difference in the conservative and liberal media. they're going to tell you you're stupid and lazy. we're going to tell you you're smart and pretty and we love you. >> oh, god! >> stephanie: i just, i'm saying i think people would rather listen to a happy lappie message. >> that's why i like listening to your show. i don't listen to them, they're not entertaining. >> stephanie: john fugelsang is saying you're wicked smart and startlingly beautiful. >> too bad we're not backstage in a dressing room. >> he likes to kiss himself. >> preparing for shows is what i meant to say. >> stephanie: by the way john fugelsang threw up just before the show and still knocked them dad, looking beautiful. still knocked it out of the park. see you tomo
in 2008 because he thought it was be spiking the ball and disrespectful for john mccain. >> yes. >> stephanie: we were saying what a dichotomy. the president crying actual tears for these kids that worked their hearts off for them. and mitt romney all he thinks of is to cut off their credit cards. >> i enjoy fire peopling. >> you hadn't heard that john about the credit cards? >> no. but it is really really shocking. and again, it's like they didn't know, because fox news loves to brag how they are the top-rated news channel but if that means that having the most ratings gives you the most credibility, that spongebob has more credibility than fox news. more americans watch spongebob than fox news. >> stephanie: yeah, and we were saying it is all about content in this new age, even as we know what they have done on radio, we were on a teeny tiny amount of stations compared to the right-wingers, but people are listening on line on stitcher on satellite they are podcasting. that's the thing you can't stop information in this day and age. for instance, they talked
along with it. mcconnell voted for it. john mccain who is a big critic of the defense part of the sequester, it was he voted for it. paul ryan voted for it. so you know, i'm not saying democrats are blameless here or don't deserve some of the responsibility but the idea that republicans are washing their hands and saying this is a white house ploy is completely wrong. >> bill: i was at the white house friday when president obama came into the east room and made a very short speech. very clear about what his plan is and what he wanted. here's the president with one challenge to members of congress. >> obama: i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges. but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. >> bill: what does he mean by that? >> balanced. he's saying first of all it's not just spending cuts. it has to be revenues as well. second, he's rejecting the john boehner approach which is boehner saying i'll agree to revenues as long as they come as
. >> stephanie: john mccain -- he is such a angry bitter little elf about losing. there was no viable military option to deflect sporadic attacks in a city full of people sympathetic to the us. really, you are going to drop a bomb -- >> well, in rambo what happened was -- >> stephanie: okay. armed drones were not in the area, air strikes without intelligence posed a huge risk of killing americans and civilians. last week the cia managers told officials benghazi not to go to the aid -- oh, they gave a stand-down order? >> no.
